Galletta's Go-Karts A--Time Points & Wins!

ALL-TIME GALLETTA’S KARTING CLUB & SPEEDWAY WINS & POINTS:

Drivers all-time stats at two of Oswego, New York’s Dirt Karting Tracks:
GREEN – Galletta’s Greenhouse Backyard Karting Speedway [2000-2018]
ORANGE – Oswego Kartway’s 1-WD Gas Division [2006-2008]

ALL-TIME WINS

Highlighted columns show driver name and feature wins on Galletta’s and Oswego Kartways in 1-WD Divisions. Of 357 drivers who have raced in our regular points features since 2000, only 55 have won at least one regular feature event.

TIE-BREAKER: When there is a tie with feature wins, total points is the tie-breaker. If there is a another tie, points-per-race-average. If it is a third tie, then they can settle it in a one-off kart race or… hell, a MMA match, whatever one they wish.

Notes on win totals:
– Chris Stevens and Billy Kuykendell have a tie (both counted as 1).
– Chris Stevens and Matt Stevens also have a tie (both counted as 1).
– Gary Miller Sr. and the Late Josh Schute both have a non-winners race feature win, counted as a regular win on the chart.
– Cameron Rowe has an honorary win granted for breaking on the last half lap of what was likely going to be his 1st win. We were proud of Cam having success in the Oswego Speedway Limited/SBS Division, and saddened that he apparently swore off ever coming back to watch or race (no reasons given).
–  As for Oswego Kartway totals, some drivers have substantial Oswego Kartway Point and Win totals in other kart class divisions (such as Kyle Reuter, Dick Dann, and others who all won many races in various methanol and gas clone classes–they have more drivers and classes than one can reasonably follow). I would say go to the Oswego Kartway website to see them… but, I don’t think they even keep those records? I know they never kept records before 2009 and they FULLY erased all evidence of us being there, and if it weren’t for this very website’s stats pictures and videos, nobody would know we even raced there for 3 years and tallied a lot of action!). 
– Five drivers (Mark Miller, Mike Billion, Eric Raponi, Joe Hayden, and Dave Melfi) won feature events in our division using a different class of motor: A 6.5hp OHV class (all other drivers used 5hp Flathead Class Motors). Three of these five drivers (Eric Raponi, Joe Hayden, and Dave Melfi)) never won a feature at Galletta’s, but won at Oswego Kartway in our mixed-motor division (Animal OHVs against our Hot Stocker w/Shaved Heads Flatheads).

ALL-TIME GALLETTA’S KARTING CLUB & SPEEDWAY POINT STANDINGS:

Drivers all-time stats at two of Oswego, New York’s Dirt Karting Tracks:

Our own Galletta’s Greenhouse Backyard Karting Speedway (est. 1995; counted from 2000-2018) in green, and the Oswego Kartway’s 1-WD Gas Division (formerly known as Oswego Speedway Dirt Track, also calls itself “The BULLring”, est. 2006; counted from 2006-2008) in orange. We have raced since the early 1990s, but lost our pre-2000 records.

You can scroll the chart left, right, up and down to see all 357 different drivers on record. [Of note, the Oswego Kartway deleted all references to our division after the conclusion of the 2008 season after barring our division from the program, so this website is the only way to know our points and videos on the track. Kartway’s stats are not tallied into the Galletta’s stats on the below chart.]

NOTES:
– Occasionally criteria is on a blurred line, so we occasionally have ties in rookie-of-the-year or visitor point titles. For example, a Summer points tittle is usually the annual one, but on some occasions (2004 for example), we held an extended Fall season that gave a 2nd driver a shot at the same title, or one had more wins while the other had more points, or even just a very close tally. In these cases, the title is shared. There’s no money or fame involved, just bragging rights, so we don’t have a set in stone criteria for those titles.

* = Chris Stevens won the race on-track, but some spectators, members, and drivers of the club disputed that Matt Stevens should not have put himself in the rear for a ticky-tack accident late in the race and should have won instead.

THE OSWEGO KARTWAY 1-WD GAS STOCKER 5HP (FUN POWER) vs. 6.5HP (ANIMAL) ANNUAL CHAMPIONS:

[All three years had Team Galletta’s 1-WD Gas Stock Fun Power Flathead 5hp engines (w/shaved heads) vs. Team Outlaws 6.5hp OHV (actually stock Animal) motors], although the 2nd half of 2008 was FH-only.

Matthew Stevens / Wesley Stevens **

NOTES: ** = Race led by Matt Stevens on final lap, when a dusty track and low lights led to the appearance of track operator Jim Losurdo throwing the yellow flag (although it was the white flag), and in response the 3rd turn corner-man threw the yellow flag. Seeing these things, leader Matt Stevens slowed down, and 2nd place Wes Stevens passed leader Matt Stevens at the stripe for the win–according to the Oswego Kartway officials. According to Galletta’s officials, the race had no final lap, and the win was split by Matt and Wes Stevens. The disagreement about this last lap sealed a permanent rift between the track operator and Galletta’s 1-WD Gas Flathead Karting Division, and they never raced at the Oswego Kartway again (our division, as well as the OHV Outlaw division, were replaced with OHV Clones). Oswego Kartway also erased all records of us even being there to further their inane, illogical, and extremely long track record of disrespect, animosity and occasionally outright hostility towards our club despite the fact that they got the idea of dirt karting from us and we supported the track for it’s 1st three years with it’s largest weekly division from 2006, 2007 and 2008.
